Love 'em loads. I'm obsessing these days about good songwriting and singing, and Todd Sheaffer's been one of the best. I think their best days might be behind them, though (up to about 2006); the newer songs don't seem so rich. Thinking about it, I'd say the same about Reid Genauer and Assembly Of Dust.

This nugget has Phil sitting in:

This solo/duo show by Todd is a favourite (and yours Daddy D as well, I see!):

Also a fan of Reid, Strangefolk & AOD, & unfortunately may have to agree w/ your sentiments about best days being behind them, though I hope we're wrong. Not so certain about Todd & RRE, though certainly he's written & played some amazing stuff over the years, so he's set the bar pretty damn high....

Love the solo show you provided the link to....listening to Todd sing "Let It Rock" as I type this...he sounds so damn good!
